Designer Bags

Designer Bags

One thing that most women wouldn’t be caught without is her designer bag.  Even if you just have only one in your closet, every girl has at least one.  It’s the one that they keep for special occasions and when they want to impress.  Most designer bags are not used for the everyday bag.  Usually the everyday bag is something that can be thrown around and still look pretty presentable.  However, the every day bag wouldn’t be caught at a nice dinner or dance party.  That’s reserved for the designer bag.  Where’s yours?

Makeup Brush

Makeup Brush

Makeup brushes have come a long way.  Not only do they make us beautiful, they have so many uses.  They add color and tone to the skin around our eyes, cheeks, neck and sometimes the entire body.  Look in any of the average woman’s purse and you will surely spot a few makeup brushes.  Some of them are tucked neatly away in their own bags or paired with different color compacts.  The makeup brush is taken for granted most of the time.  It’s one of the most used beauty utensils that we don’t appreciate until we don’t have it.  Where is yours?

Gems

Gems

Celebrities are fascinated with beautiful gems.  Whenever you watch them walk on the red carpet, you always see them wearing awesome jewelry that was just loaned to them from a famous fashion designer.  Believe it or not,  most celebrities say they don’t own a lot of expensive jewelry but that they borrow it.  Nevertheless, you rarely catch them out and about in public without any on.  The average person probably has nice and probably even expensive jewelry in their collections but it’s a far cry from being loaned a three million dollar bracelet to wear to a party and be expected to bring it right back.  The perks of being a celebrity.  Isn’t it grand?

Tattoos are so popular these days that the average tattoo artist can make a nice living working out of their home.  There used to be a stigma attached to getting a tattoo which meant you were a biker or extreme free spirit.  These days the average secretary has about 2-3 tattoos on her thigh in addition to a few on her arm and no one gives it a second thought.  People’s opinions of tattoos has relaxed and more younger people are starting to want them even more than ever.  Before you get a tattoo, just think responsibly and remember that it’s permanent unless you want to get an uncomfortable skin graft to remove it if you just so happen to break up with the person who’s name is tattooed on you.

Botox

Botox

Botox injections is very popular amongst women who want to soften the appearance of wrinkles in their face.  It’s basically safe but it can become addicting.  One injection can cost from $300-$1000 depending on how your appearance is and the doctor.  Of course, celebrity doctors would probably charge more.  The injections are semi-temporary and can last anywhere from 3-6 months but in order to keep your wrinkles or face relaxed, you’ll need to keep getting them.  It affects everyone differently.  Some people do appear improved but others you can tell they’ve had the injections and their face looks swollen and misproportioned.  Make sure do research any botox or cosmetic changes that you are planning on taking because some of it’s irreversible.

Feet

Feet

Our feet are very important. Without them, we couldn’t walk or run to our next appointments.  Sometimes we take them for granted and let them get dry, scaly and worn out.  Take care of your feet because they take care of you.  Pamper them by soaking them in a pan of hot soap and water with a few splashes of baby oil.  Then massage them with your favorite nice smelling lotion and put them up on a pillow and relax them for about 30-40 minutes.  Keeping your toenails trimmed and polished (even if it’s clear) is like the cherry on top.

Beads

Beads

Have you ever been to Mardi Gra or a parade where people are throwing beads into the crowd. It’s amazing to see what the people in the crowd will do to get those beads. Some will flash their body parts or scream and yell to get some plastic beads that they could buy for a few bucks down the street. Beads are very popular in many cultures because they symbolize beauty and style. Most of us that have beads just hang them over a mirror or a top a door and don’t pay them any mind at all. Some of us like to wear them the same color of the outfit that we so happen to have on. Beads are fashionable and you’ll see them draping over many models strutting on the runways of Milan and Paris. They’re super cool.
